Keeping abreast of the newest developments in climate change is essential to make timely, effective and sustainable decisions. Yet, adequate time and space for learning are rarely accessible for busy delegates, decision-makers and full-time working professional.
This is why we have developed the Climate Classroom - a mobile learning space that ‘pops up’ at the center of major climate change conferences and related events. The Climate Classroom offers focused 45-min learning sessions on highly relevant climate change topics delivered by select experts in English and French.
During each class, the lecturer and the 20 participants are equipped with noise-canceling headsets through which they will be able to follow the lecture and engage in discussion. A booklet with information on the lesson and links to additional learning resources is made available to all learners. Participants completing the sessions receive a UN CC:Learn pin and become part of the Alumni community.
Check out the list below and our calendar or events to see if a climate classroom will be popping up at your next conference.
